Audio Fidelity To Release Billy Joel’s Critically Acclaimed Third Album “Streetlife Serenade” On 4.0 Quad Multichannel Hybrid SACD

“A classic album by one of rock’s
foremost piano men”

Much to the excitement of
Billy Joel fans worldwide, Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity will be releasing
Streetlife Serenade on 4.0 Quad Multichannel Hybrid SACD. Billy Joel is an
incomparable musician, having sold more than 150 million records, he ranks as
one of the most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in the
world. Streetlife Serenade is Joel’s third studio album originally released in
1974. This album usually gets overlooked when discussing Billy Joel’s career,
but all these years later, Streetlife Serenade may rank as one of his finest
efforts. Joel keeps things lively and diversified from song to song. “The Great
Suburban Showdown” and “Last of the Big Time Spenders” have an openly spaced,
laid-back western vibe, not unlike what the Eagles were doing during their 1970s
heyday. The spunky instrumentals “Root Beer Rag” and “The Mexican Connection”
show off Joel’s formidable piano-playing skills and are pure fun. “Weekend Song”
is an awesomely rugged rocker and the quirky hit “The Entertainer” is sheer pop
genius, both lyrically and sonically. 


This was the last album that Billy Joel
recorded with the singer-songwriter style. Most of the compositions look back
intimately at Joel’s life. The album has great arrangements and rhythms and
lyrics that tell a story with feeling and hints that he had enough with
California, enough with the music industry, enough with being a sensitive
artist. It was time for Billy to say goodbye to Hollywood and head back home to
New York. 

Producer: Michael Stewart & Billy Joel
